Dalton—Tandus Centiva, a Tarkett company, celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Publicolor at the organization’s annual Stir, Splatter + Roll Gala on May 16 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.
The gala honored two charitable individuals, The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg and E. John Rosenwald, Jr., for their longtime support of Publicolor and its programs.
Recognizing the importance of education and Publicolor, Tandus Centiva along with Suzanne Tick and Antron carpet fiber support the Publicolor Summer Design Studio—an innovative work-study program that utilizes a non-traditional curriculum emphasizing tactile learning experiences. The combination of project-based learning, community service and paid work opportunities provide a compilation of meaningful activities for youth who otherwise would be idle when the school year ends in June.
The Tandus Centiva, Suzanne Tick and Antron carpet fiber collections contribute up to $0.30 per square yard to the Publicolor Summer Design Studio. The contribution is a match among partners based on product sales into education environments. Based on 2015 qualifying sales, $132,497.97 was donated to the Summer Design Studio, helping to prevent summer learning loss for 76 disconnected youth by uniquely teaching math and literacy through product design.

Dalton—Tandus Centiva has announced the Antron brand as a contributing supplier in its support of Publicolor to raise funding and awareness for the Publicolor Summer Design Studio. Suzanne Tick (STI) designs a collection of soft surface flooring products for Tandus Centiva. When a product from this collection is specified and purchased for an education project, Suzanne Tick and Tandus Centiva have each committed a $0.10 per square yard donation to Publicolor. Antron has committed to matching an additional $0.10 per square yard donation to Publicolor for products using Antron fiber.
“We are pleased to join Suzanne Tick and Tandus Centiva in supporting Publicolor,” said Marc Ahrens, vice president of Invista’s Antron brand. “We are committed to adding value to society, and Publicolor’s efforts to increase student achievement align with our vision and values.”
“We are thrilled and grateful to partner with Tandus Centiva, Antron and Publicolor’s trustee, Suzanne Tick, on this program to benefit Publicolor’s Summer Design Studio, our unique 7-week literacy and math immersion program for high-risk students whom we teach through the scaffold of product design,” said Ruth Lande Shuman, Publicolor’s founder and president.
Dalton — Tandus Centiva said it has launched a new design, Code Series from designer Suzanne Tick.
Technology and the power to work at a new pace have changed the way a space is defined. Today’s spaces demand flexibility. Suzanne Tick takes the idea of digital connection and creates a design language that allows for agile transformation from one color to another. The company said this ability to connect is celebrated by the Code Series giving architects and designers endless opportunities for dividing or defining a space.
Available in several distinct styles, Code Series delivers innovative ways to combine large and small-scale patterns.
Code, tip-shear and tonal shifts strip away the hard edges associated with technology while maintaining the 90-degree angles that provide a timeless architectural aesthetic. The Code palette provides color stepping for modular gradations and new tertiary brights for pops of accent color.
MegaCode takes Code up a notch in scale, designed for use in lobbies and other large open spaces or in combination with Code and Code Transition to create even larger modular designs.
Code Transition is specifically designed as a connection piece to combine products and colorways and is available in a range of tones.
Code Series is enhanced by the introduction of new yellow, green, magenta and orange solution-dyed Tandus Centiva Dynex yarns.
Like all Tandus Centiva soft surface products, Code, MegaCode and Code Transition are 100% recyclable through Tandus Centiva’s ReStart Program, the industry’s first to be SCS-certified.
